Quick question on M1 camouflage

Recommended Posts

Why is the basic M1 model in game not in the MERDC camo scheme?

 

I presume the plain green is historical but what is the context to this?

What I'd like to ask is how long did the "olive green phase" for US Army AFVs between MERDC and the three colour NATO camouflage last?

IIRC, I think MERDC and solid green were used together in the late 1970s, on a unit by unit basis. Again, IIRC, by early 1980s I think most vehicles were painted in MERDC colors, but if I recall - it wasn't very uniform until the NATO 3 tone camo was adopted.
